Longlands Fell is a small fell in the northern part of the Lake District situated in the high ground known as the Uldale Fells, 5.5 kilometres south west of the village of Caldbeck. It reaches a height of 483 m (1,585 ft) and along with Binsey is the most northerly fell in the Lake District.

Longlands Fell is characterised by grassy, smooth slopes which drop down gradually to the lowlands north of Lakeland making the ascent of the fell quite easy from that direction.

The other Uldale Fells are Great Sca Fell, Great Cockup and Meal Fell and together are really just one big sheep pasture which does not draw large numbers of fell walkers or visitors and is probably the quietest part of the national park, the border of which is only two kilometres to the north.

The view from the top takes in the Solway Firth and the Galloway hills to the north. To the south are good views of Skiddaw with the fells around the Whinlatter forest well seen.

Longlands Fell is one the easier fell walks in the Lake District, the ascent starts from the hamlet of Longlands which is a small group of houses and takes the track north east which skirts the base of the fell, this is part of the low level alternative of the Cumbria Way.

When the foot of the northern ridge is reached this is followed up easy slopes to reach the summit.

Longlands Fell is often climbed in conjunction with other fells, being connected to the south east by a 2.5 kilometre ridge to Great Sca Fell which in turn gives access along its ridges to the rest of the fells in the area.
